On a cool fall fall evening there’s just nothing like a warm cup a tea to help relax you. Here is a recipe for “Sleepy Tea” from Nourished Kitchen. What I especially like about this recipe is that you can actually grow all of the ingredients yourself!
1 tablespoon dried lemon balm
2 teaspoons dried peppermint
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon dried rose petals
1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
2 slices dried licorice root
honey (as needed)
heavy cream or milk (as needed)
Place a kettle of filtered water onto the stove and bring to a boil.
While the water comes to a boil, place herbs and spices into a mortar and crush with a pestle until roughly combined. Transfer to a teapot, pour boiling water over the herbs and steep for three to five minutes.
Strain and serve with honey and cream, as you like it.”
